Captain_Zaphod: #TemporalTues Pt.1 -1975 on safari for the rare, never-before-photographed, fuzzy-feathered Pip Squaker bird. A bipedal cat & mouse managed

Captain_Zaphod: #TemporalTues Pt.2 to trap the shy bird w/ a carrot (a Pip Squaker's favorite food) to take a picture of it. Squaker is now

Captain_Zaphod: #TemporalTues Pt.3 stuffed & mounted on the deck of the Heart of Gold. Left the mammals on Traal w/ a family of Ravenous Bugblatter Beasts.

fangarius: Seems both my relations, the Addamses and Munsters want me & the TARDIS 2 to go back to 1348 to the days of the Black Plague #TemporalTues

fangarius: Whereas Mordecai and Rigby want me to go back to June 25, 1976, when The Omen came to theaters. #TemporalTues

fangarius: In honor of Vincent's Centennial, I'd go back to 1960 through 68 and watch some of his films, like "Tales of Terror." #TemporalTues

ZAmmi: Feta cheese,olives,coarse bread,wild leaves & wine-If I'm gonna do the Mediterranean Diet properly, it must be Ancient Greece! #temporaltues

ZAmmi: Wearing a garment called a peplos. It's open on one side! (how risqué!) Made of white linen with a pretty vine pattern #temporaltues

ZAmmi: The Mediterranean Diet does not mean pasta! It's a diet that has remained the same in places like Crete since the Stone Age. #temporaltues

ZAmmi: It relies on fresh fruit & vegetables supplemented by bread, olive oil, wine and a little cured fish or cheese. Delicious! #temporaltues

ZAmmi: It's a diet that's so healthy that experts in the 20th century recommended mimicking it. I'm here to document the real thing #temporaltues

ZAmmi: Even today Cretans gather various wild,aromatic plants to make 'horta' salad to sell at market.It's more popular than takeaway #temporaltues

ZAmmi: They chop them up small to make pesto, slathered in olive oil, -good for lentils & in tomato stews- or simply serve it fresh. #temporaltues

ZAmmi: It's kind of exciting knowing we're eating food that would have been served to Alexander the Great's troops or at Knossos. #temporaltues

ZAmmi: The palace at Knossos holds 1300 rooms, many with oil & wine presses & storerooms for tons & tons olive oil -used as currency. #temporaltues

ZAmmi: Hidden underneath the pithoi - large clay storage vases for wine, grain & oil- were secret vaults containing gold! #temporaltues

ZAmmi: It's calculated the vats at Knossos could hold 246,000 litres! How many martinis could you make with all the olives for that? #temporaltues

ZAmmi: So you could say the king was rolling in it.. Literally! Using oil in massaging & grooming was very popular.Who says he didnt? #temporaltues

ZAmmi: Modern towns claim to have trees over 2500yrs old. Maybe I could pinpoint the coordinates of ancient groves, see if any match? #temporaltues

ZAmmi: Want to visit the ancient Mediterranean? What, you don't have a time machine? Try these sumptuous recipes. The Cretan Diet #Temporaltues

scablander: Taking Time Machine back in time to 1960 to watch The Time Machine. #TemporalTues
